Notes

At the beginning of 2004, Sylvie Bouvier worked with her pupils
(7 to 9 years old Adama, Zacharia, Rojin & Swell)
on writing some rap lyrics as it seemed to be the very way they would learn
to read and write french.

I knew Rojin, Zacharia and Adama for having already worked with them.
I found the result so nice, so astonishaly personal, that i proposed the guys to record
them while toasting their text, and to make a track for them.

I was teaching 3 years old pupils that same year so it wasn't easy finding some time
to record them. i had to cut & paste on the voices and overdubbed some music.

In the text, Adama talks of his mother's death, Zacharia says he misses his father who
he hardly sees... Though there is so much trouble for them, they keep having that huge
appetite for life.

Everyone had his cd. They proudly played it in all the classes of the school.
Unfortunately i couldn't scan the sleeve's drawings each one had made.
Wars, weapons... but also a bright Sun !
